    There is an Xbox app in Windows 10. I suppose that it will make it easier to run your Xbox with Windows 10 if you have one. I do not have one so I do not know. But to judge an OS without even trying it on a blank Hard Drive is foolish and to depend on other peoples views with varying types of Hardware makes it worse. One would better be severed by seeing how it runs on their box and not others.

    What on earth has my problems got to do with it?? My mention of risk taking implies preparedness to accept problems.

    I just wondered what contribution your post was adding because you wouldn't even try win 10.

    Unlike you, I have no doubts whatsoever.... that you appear to be a troll, trying to rile people up.

    Windows 10

    I've had the technical preview on my system as my primary OS since build 9926, I haven't had a single issue regarding stability. I haven't even touched my overclock (4.4 GHz on a low end board) since installing all these updates, yet have still been 100% stable. I'd guess that many of the issues stability wise are due to system stability (or lack there of), not OS stability.

    Edited: Btw, I've been on the fast ring the entire time.

    I think that was a well thought out statement to make - knowing it would attract people to question your line of thinking.

    I'm not here to get anyone riled up, and only here to read what others say or get answers to their questions. When some (Microsoft) get on the web and start telling people this can is a "free" item at no cost, one would have to think... where is this person/company coming from? No one gives anything free today... there is some "hidden" cost to follow, and it will not be in your favor.

    BTW. You, I and all the others that get on the Internet are considered trolls, and the real term means your are trolling the web.
    Now you know the rest of the story.

    Now you know the rest of the story.
    In this case.. free is free .. but you do have to exchange the license to Win7 or WIn8.1 to get Win10. Now to address the why.. because MS wants to get as many people/users off of Win7/Win8.1 and onto the new OS so they can reduce the cost of support for the two older OS's. That's how the benefit comes in for them in the long run.

    There is no hidden cost.. all updates will be free for the life of the device that OS is on. That simple..

    And to just put the cherry on this, it's odd that someone just drops in and starts complaining about an OS they've never tried out one time. Like I mentioned in a previous post.. try it out before you just take someone else's word for what to think about Win10. IT is a rather good OS. Again IMO.
